Dementia, Equity, and Rights Report

Dementia has historically not been associated with equity and rights, as it is a term used for a range of different conditions that physically affect the brain and often referred to as an organic brain disease. And even though anyone can develop dementia, some groups have higher prevalence rates and experience greater disparities in the care they receive and the support that is provided to carers. The report Dementia, Equity, and Rights addresses these inequalities and provides recommendations on how to provide care better.
